63 - Tour de France stage 16 recap

Post no. 63 here:
The Tour de France is into its last week of racing, and only the Alps and a time-trial to come stage 16 was one of the easier stages before the finish.

Australia's Cadel Evans has moved up a place to be second overall after the 16th stage of the Tour de France.Evans finished the stage 11th, 4min 23sec behind winner Norwegian Thor Hushovd to gain time on Frenchman Thomas Voeckler, who retained the race leader's yellow jersey.
World Champion Thor Hushovd wins another stage

World champion Hushovd led a three-man breakaway to win his 2nd stage of the Tour, and continue his blistering form. Contador was also another winner this stage, he looked much better in the saddle and is looking to be back to his great form after early crashes hurt his knees. 
"The important thing is that I felt strong, I had good feelings in my legs. There are three days in the mountains, so we have to try and capitalize" said the Spaniard.
Overall Standings:
1. T. Voeckler 
2. C. Evans (+1.45 mins)
3. F. Schleck (+1.49 mins
 Joke of the Day:
